ETIV's Movie Of The Month: Roma
It's no secret that we at ETIV do Brasil are passionate about cinema.
So much so that we have even started our Movie Nights to offer our children and youth the chance to enjoy a movie on the big screen, with juices and popcorn.
We believe that good films, besides entertaining us, can also inspire our imagination and teach us about values that should guide our lives. That's why, from now on, we will have the ETIV's Movie Of The Month with recommendations of films that have deeply touched us.
The movie of January is ROMA, written and directed by Oscar Winner Alfonso Cuarón.
ROMA follows Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio - who has delivered an unforgettable performance!), a young domestic worker for a family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma in Mexico City.
Offering an artful and touching love letter to the women who raised him, Cuarón draws on his own childhood to create a vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst Mexico's political turmoil of the 70s.
Shot entirely in black and white, ROMA is an instant classic, a work of art with sublime photography and profound storytelling. Its cinematic technique is stunning and it wonderfully captures the spirit of “Magical Realism”.
Just watch it. You will never forget it.
